The UC Office of the President has confirmed that all UC locations will implement a July 1, 2021, salary increase budget of 3 percent for policy covered staff. Given that we were not able to give policy covered staff salary increases last year and to recognize the extraordinary effort by our policy covered staff employees during the pandemic, the salary increases will be distributed as a general increase, where all eligible policy covered staff employees would receive a 3 percent increase to their base salary. Although this year’s salary program is not a merit program where performance is a consideration related to the salary increase amount, the importance of the annual performance review process should not be discounted. All policy covered staff employees should continue to participate in the ACHIEVE performance check-ins.
Increases for SMG and Non-SMG policy covered staff whose total cash compensation exceeds the current Indexed Compensation Level will be processed in accordance with guidelines established by UCOP.
Employees should go to their immediate manager/supervisor with questions or concerns. If an employee has a concern that their manager/supervisor could not address, employees should contact their Campus HR Business Partner, Health Sciences HR Business Partner or Medical Center HR Business Partner.
